Many of us, as men believe that we need to have it all figured out in order for us to be successful. It's the old adage, "Fake it 'til you make it."
And, while confidence is certainly something you'll need to gain in order to have success, the fine line between it and ego has the ability to destroy it. My guest today, the one and only Ryan Holiday shares how confidence is earned while ego isn't, the dangers and pitfalls of an inflated ego, and how to get out of your own way.
Ryan Holiday is a media strategist and prominent writer on strategy and business. After dropping out of college at nineteen to apprentice under Robert Greene, author of The 48 Laws of Power, he went on to advise many bestselling authors and multi-platinum musicians. He served as director of marketing at American Apparel for many years, where his campaigns have been used as case studies by Twitter, YouTube, and Google and written about in AdAge, the New York Times, and Fast Company.
His first book, Trust Me I'm Lying—which the Financial Times called an “astonishing, disturbing book”—was a debut bestseller and is taught in colleges around the world.
He is also the author of two other books that have been instrumental in heling me achieve success in my life, The Obstacle is the Way and his latest - which he is here to talk about with us today - Ego is the Enemy.
In today's overly sensitive, comfortable, sedentary world, men need to, now more than ever return to what Theodore Roosevelt calls The Strenuous Life.
